Daters beware! Your looking for love or even just a companion to share conversation, dinner and a movie. Well be sure and take your wallet. There have been several reports of the dine and dash dater.
The story goes like this. You meet someone online. He’s handsome, charming and the conversations go well. You decide to meet for dinner. You order a great bottle of wine, appetizers, steak, shrimp, and dessert. While the days are gone where it is expected that the guy is exclusively responsible for the bill, we don’t wait that we will be footing the entire bill, especially on the first dinner date!
After the lovely and expensive dinner, he excuses himself to take a call, go to the bathroom. The problem is he never returns! You are 100% stuck with the entire bill. This shady behavior is not something we prepare for when going to meet new love interest for a nice dinner.
In one case, the dash and dine dater had repeated this behavior on several occasions with different women. After an investigation, the district attorneys office discovered that he had warrants for petty theft and also spent some time in jail for misdemeanor arrests. Women have reported getting stuck with dinner bills costing hundreds of dollars with no retribution.
In some cases, he has given a false name, and his identity is discovered through pictures. If you are a victim of this type of incident, please notify the authorities. Many women are embarrassed to report these events, but that is the only way to try and stop the dash and dine dater from continuing to get his belly full and empty your wallet!
